The Family Mealtime Study: Parent Socialization and Context during Family Meals
Kok, Car Mun; Torquati, Julia; de Guzman, Maria
Journal of Extension, v57 n3 Article 3RIB3 Jun 2019
Research on the family mealtime has shown its importance for youths' dietary attitudes and behaviors. Youths who have more frequent family meals often have more healthful dietary behaviors. However, little is known about the context and processes related to how family mealtimes affect youths' dietary behaviors. To address this gap, we examined the context of family mealtimes and parent socialization that occurs during family meals through mealtime observations and interviews. Family mealtimes are valued by parents, and our findings can be useful to Extension professionals in educating parents and families regarding shaping of family mealtimes, feeding strategies, and nutrition.
